  • Kovalev has way more experience but his odometer is of concern. Yarde has the blueprint and is a powerful “kid” with major man strength. Kovalev called him a kid. He’ll probably be the strongest kid Kovalev has ever faced. I expect Yarde to figure him out by the 4th round. Kovalev will be gassed by the 6th round and finished in 7. Yarde by tko 7.

    • I have the same scenario but in favor of Kovalev. Yarde will be the one who’s gassed because of his muscles and the experienced crusher will finish him off.

  • Funny, I see this as a replay of Lacy vs Calzaghe, but by brutal KO and or humiliation…I would not be at all surprised to see a first round TKO if favor of “Krusher”!

  • Probably right he’s mandatory but not proven as a legitimate contender. unless he’s better than I think he is better enjoy his chance for fighting for a world title.

  • Weiner dix on here see your name and down-vote. It’s actually petulant. Kovalev smacks the Hoodrat inside 6.

    • Jonathan, fat tits hasnt fought anyone…kovalev has been in with tip caliber fighters and had success.. No chance.

  • Trade has a chin.. But didnt have it. “Mr. Cigarette’s” conditioning proved better than “mr. Fat tits” and his heavy arms.
